I will never drive again, I have admitted that driving will kill me or others eventually.
I was in the same boat as many of you that write posts about driving. I required our car for work, shopping, etc. Now I have none of that.
I say that though we have just bought a high end mobility scooter for when I need to leave the house locally! The hills have killed John 1!!
I have now decided never to drive a car again. I have so many absence seizures, etc. from my TBI in 2012. I have had so many blows to my head in my life before this and did some awful and dangerous things for years in our cars.
I know it is for most of you your need for making a living but I look at driving with an advanced form of brain trauma as an horrific thing.
Sorry of this offends any of you, it is my own opinion!! My conscience would be tatters if I hit someone, etc. I could not live with myself!
Maybe this is the need for another form of care to protect us financially who may never drive again? I see it (in my off beat brain) as money worth it over injuries, even death.
The needs of most of us are ruined by the loss of driving not just for work. The problem is another money exercise for the system to pay and sort out?
What do you all think?
I also see that the DVLA are willing to give car and HGV licences back. I would have only received my car part of my licence. No trailers, etc. Just car only. I would check!!
I was told this as I was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in 2014 before my brain damage diagnosis this year. My PTSD hid my brain trauma! Having PTSD resulted in my car only licence renewal. They do not know about my brain damage yet!!
Please be gentle and considerate with your replies. I have severe issues with negativity but would like to raise points every now and again. I have come across some really negative (me) reply posts in my few months on here.
All the best to you all and if you do drive be careful!!
